This is an intermediate to advanced writing group only and we welcome new attendees. However, if you are unsure about your writing ability, please attend a few sessions, listening to the critiques, and the discussions. This will help you to determine where you are in your writing.
If you are not at this level (and you know it :) then please attend our Thursday night session for help and critiques of your writing.
Regulars have first priority for critique. Submissions should be 1200 to 1500 words in Time Roman, 12 pt, double spaced. If we have time we can do more, but only if we have time.
Bring enough copies for everyone. If you can't attend please remove your RSVP, that will save everyone from making copies for you. If you are attending, RSVP so we have enough copies.
If you are new to the group, please come a couple of times and participate in the critique before you bring pages. You'll see how we work and whether your skill set is in the right place.
Everyone who attends is expected to give a substantive critique. It is not enough to read through quickly, have no comments, and then expect an in-depth critique of your work It is also not appropriate to critique for things you "like" or "dislike" or to tell individuals to "go read a book on grammar." This session is designed to give informative critiques as well as receive them. We all learn from critiquing and getting critiqued, no matter your skill level.
This is also not a forum to pitch your novel. We are not open to sales pitches or marketing. This is for writing, not marketing.
NOTE: Damon, and Roberta have agreed to help me host this one. So if any of us can make it this will be scheduled.
